Best freediving experience: Ansel Point: I dived through the murky river water. The darkness increased with depthand at a certain point is was almost completely dark. Suddenly I broke through the layer of river water and entered sea water. This water was clear and illuminated by a strange blue light. Below me I saw the rocks of Ansel point disappearing into the abyss. I changed course and followed the rocks to the surface. I was slightly boyant and could 'fly' through the crevasses back to the surface towards the sun.
This was certainly a dive I will remember.
